Lady Gaga cancels remaining dates of her tour because of fibromyalgia
“I’m so devastated I don’t know how to describe it. All I know is that if I don’t do this, I am not standing by the words or meaning of my music. My medical team is supporting the decision for me to recover at home.”
This is how Lady Gaga announced to fans on Instagram she was cancelling the remaining dates of her Joanne World Tour, as she battles the chronic pain disorder fibromyalgia, that causes pain as well as fatigue, headaches and insomnia.
“I love this show more than anything and I love you, but this is beyond my control. London, Manchester, Zurich, Koln, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Paris, Berlin. And Rio. I promise I will be back in your city, but for now, I need to put myself and my well-being first. I love you, forever,” Gaga concluded the statement.
The Joanne World Tour began in August last year in Vancouver, Canada, and was scheduled to conclude on 23 February in Berlin, Germany.
Also Live Nation released a statement later on Saturday (Feb. 3rd), confirming the cancelled dates, that reads: “Unfortunately, Lady Gaga is suffering from severe pain that has materially impacted her ability to perform live. As a result, Live Nation and Lady Gaga are announcing the cancellation of the final 10 dates of the European leg of her Joanne World Tour.”
